Bobbi Brown x L’Wren Scott Amnesia Rose Collection for Spring 2014

Following Bobbi Brown’s London Fashion Week debut at L’Wren Scott’s Fall 2013 runway show, the makeup maven and fashion icon have teamed up for their first off-therunway collaboration. Inspired by the amnesia roses grown by L’Wren at her Loire Valley chateau, the limited edition Amnesia Rose Collection will be unveiled at L’Wren’s Spring 2014 Fashion Show during London Fashion Week.

Lip Color ($28.00) (Limited Edition)

Bobbi’s classic soft-matte lipstick, now in four chic shades that take their cue from the tonal hues of the amnesia rose. Neutrals—Heather Mauve and Cosmic Lily—and statement-making Wine and Vintage Red are showcased in pale mauve chrome cases. Infused with Vitamins E and C as well as Beeswax, the formula moisturizes and comforts lips.

  • Cosmic Lily
  • Wine
  • Heather Mauve
  • Vintage Red

Amnesia Rose Palette ($68.00) (Limited Edition)

Featuring an impressionistic sketch of L’Wren Scott, this palette opens to reveal choices for eyes, lips and cheeks in cool mauves, heathers and lilacs, accented with bright violet and mulberry shades, some of which were inspired by L’Wren’s amnesia rose garden and the colors in her spring show.

  • Amnesia Rose Eye Shadow
  • Silver Lilac Sparkle Eye Shadow
  • Pink Lilac Sparkle Eye Shadow
  • Iron Eye Shadow
  • Ultra Violet Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow
  • Mulberry Eye Shadow
  • Desert Rose Pot Rouge
  • Sand Pink Blush

Long-Wear Eye Pencil ($24.00)

Richly pigmented liner glides on smoothly for precise definition that lasts all day, so there’s no need to worry about smudging or smearing. The charcoal gray shade is the perfect complement to the dusky purples and mauves of the collection. Includes a complimentary sharpener.

  • Smoke

Smokey Eye Mascara ($28.00)

This kohl-pigmented mascara delivers high drama thanks to its ability to build volume lash by lash—as opposed to traditional volumizing formulas that create the appearance of volume by clumping lashes together. A thicker brush base evenly combs through eyelashes from roots to ends, while a tapered tip grabs those small, hard-to-reach lashes. The result is dramatically dark, stretched-out lashes in an instant. Available in Black.

Available: February 2014 at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Counters at Barneys, Bergdorf, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks, Holt, Sephora.com and at www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com.

5 Glittering Golds for the Holidays

Glittering golds… a go-to for New Year’s Eve, at the very least, but surely just as lovely throughout the winter–if only to brighten up some of those chilly days!

  1. Lit Cosmetics Rich & Famous — a holographic, glittering gold
  2. Zoya Kerry — bright, true yellow gold with glitter and sparkle
  3. Bobbi Brown Canary — a sparkling gold glitter gloss to be worn alone or layered
  4. Revlon Gold Coin — an almost-cool-toned metallic gold (or for a high-end, Illamasqua Swinger)
  5. Sugarpill Goldilux — a brightened, metallic, true yellow gold

What are your favorite glittery, sparkly, or metallic gold-hued shades?

Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks

Bobbi Brown 24 Karat Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “beige gold.” It’s a pale, champagne gold with a frosted, metallic finish. It had good color payoff in a single stroke and built up nicely. The consistency was lightly creamy–enough to glide across lids without skipping but it didn’t take forever to set. Once set, it stays in place and wore well for eight hours. This is particularly nice for highlighting the inner corner of the eye to brighten. Too Faced Crème Brulee (P) is darker, powder. L’Oreal Gold Imperial (LE, $7.99) is yellower, power. L’Oreal Eternal Sunshine (P, $7.99) is slightly warmer, yellower, and powder. Lancome Eternal Gold (P, $24.50) is powder, slightly yellower. Dior Night Golds #4 (LE) is warmer, powder. See comparison swatches.

Bobbi Brown Candlelight & Pure Gold High Shimmer Lipglosses

Bobbi Brown Candlelight High Shimmer Lipgloss ($24.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is described as a “champagne glitter.” It’s a pale, golden beige with gold, champagne, and copper shimmer and sparkle. On lips, it adds a very subtle warmth, but it is primarily adding a glossy shine and a moderate amount of shimmer. It wears three hours on me and is lightly hydrating. MAC Impossibly Sweet (LE, $15.00) is very similar. MAC Pleasure Principle (LE, $20.00) is lighter. MAC Moth to Flame (P, $20.00) is warmer. MAC Phiff (LE, $20.00) is also warmer. See comparison swatches.
